How to Solo Carry in League of Legends

How to solo carry in League of Legends is the proverbial phrase for many beginners in the game. Everybody wants to be the star, but more importantly, they want to win the game and move up in the ladder. It can be difficult rising up in ranks when it's a team game, so the best way to control your fate is to take over a game.

There isn't a sure-fire way to solo carry a game, yet your position is important. It's near impossible to carry as a support and each meta gives strength to a certain role. As of 9.15, top laners are in a great spot. Bruisers are powerful again, so choose a beefy top laner and you can dominate a game.

The best top laners at the moment are Garen, Yorick, Illaoi, Urgot, and Kled. Choose one of these if you want to win your lane and the game after that.

How to Solo Carry in League of Legends: Play Style

In solo queue, it's imperative that you play like you have no jungler. You can't rely on the player to be there at the right times, so always act like you don't have back up. On the flipside, you need to be aware of the enemy jungler and properly ward your river.

Only push the lane when you know you won't be ganked, but be relentless. Once you have a lead, don't let up. Constantly push the wave until you destroy the first tower then look to roam.

You can control the whole tempo of the game, so push it once you get ahead.
